Explanation of download speeds on BB

  mammak 20:21 31 Jul 2007

I have just downloaded a movie from Love Film it was 551.23 MB in size I was very impressed at the speed of the download it took about half an hour

the speed was reported at 284.23KB/s shooting up to 289.00KB/s

I was on my laptop with a wireless connection to my BT BB home hub Router along with 2 other PCs connected at the time I am meant get up to 6.5MB connection in my area surely this really fast for a download I ain't complaining by the way just want to know if anyone considers this really fast?.

Blueyonder 10mg, 700mb down loaded in 11 mins, others are on 20mg, so much faster than me, plus it depends on the server you are downloading from.

By the way it was a linux distro I downloaded.

289 KB/s equates to about 2.3 Mbps - not particularly good if you can get up to 6.5 Mbps

is about average.

on a super fast connection the film would download in under 5mins.
